Friends Only
Comment to be added.
Or just add me.
It might take about a week for me to notice, but I will.


I fangirl a lot. And that's an understatement.
I'm not very PC. Get used to it.
I take nothing seriously. (Read: I'm always makin' the jokes.)
Cute boys and memes dominate my journal.

I love new friends. :]
I'll add anyone.
If you'll enjoy the lulz and can tolerate loving of cute boys, ♥?

Alton Brown is a cool guy. I respected his show and totally loved everything he did. Until now.

This is an excerpt from an interview recently posted.

He also points to the Travel Channel's popular eating challenge show "Man vs. Food" as "disgusting." "I think it's a sin," he states. "That show is about gluttony, and gluttony is wrong. It's wasteful. Think about people that are starving to death and think about that show. I think it's an embarrassment."
and
"You know why? He can go to strange places and he never disrespects anybody. So there's a show about a guy eating stuff, but it's the other side of the coin of 'Man vs. Food.'"

...wha...what?

I don't know if you've ever watched Man v. Food, guys, but it's an excellent show. Adam Richman, the host, takes on food challenges and visits great food establishments. Can it be indulgent? Sure. 6 pound burritos might offend someone. If it was just for that, it'd be terrible. But it shows off small restaurants that NEED the business.

Adam is fantastic. He's so happy to be doing what he's doing. He visits these restaurants and treats them all like family; he respects them and what they do. He's just excellent at what he does.
I follow Adam's Twitter...he's such a great, genuine guy that just wants to entertain everyone. He does it to bring well-deserved fame to places that deserve it. He loves what he does. And to have that called "disgusting" is unbelievably rude and shocking.

He tweeted this.
Alton Brown: MvF is about indulgence-NOT gluttony-& has brought loads of biz to Mom-n-Pop places. You were my hero, sir. No more.

Like...his heart is broken here. That was such a horribly rude comment from Alton , I can't even believe it. I can see how it could be "excessive" but it's nowhere near "disgusting." It's an entertaining show, and it's sweet.

I like to remember Alton Brown as the guy that just wanted to explain good food to people. Now he's on his high horse. If you read the rest of the article, he complains about everything in the food industry and gives thumbs up to his friends. I just can't. No more, sir.

I just...I couldn't think of where else to say it but here. That's all.
I don't know where else to air out how angry I am about this. I'm livid, but mostly sad, for Adam. I just kind of wish they could meet and Alton could see how awesome of a guy Adam really is.

P.S. It is just Alton having a problem with it. Even Anthony Bourdain, the master of all food bitchiness, said something along the lines of "I watch Man v. Food. The challenges are crazy... The host is such a great guy...why are they trying to kill him!?" when I saw him this spring. Yeah.

I couldn't be arsed to do a review for every day of Children of Earth, so I just threw it all into one thing. I just finished Day 5. So, here are my thoughts.

MASSIVE SPOILERS WITHIN FOR ALL OF TORCHWOOD:CHILDREN OF EARTH.
Seriously, if you haven't seen it, DO NOT read ANY of this. It'll ruin it and the experience won't be as good. Really.

This is the irrational side. Short, SWEARING with .gifs. MASSIVE, MASSIVE SPOILERS.Collapse )

This is the rational Review portion. MASSIVE SPOILERS.Collapse )

Non-spoilery-heads-up 1: Get a snack and a beverage, the eps are long.

NSHU2: I had to watch 24 after to cheer myself up. Basically, I had to watch ruthless shootouts with terrorists to cheer up. This shit is dark. This ain't fluffy Torchwood.

Well, that book is out of my system. Soz for the tl;dr, guys.

I just spent like 5 hours cleaning house, I'm gonna sit on my ass and talk about Torchwood.

This is my new avoiding/awkwardness icon. Love it.

SPOILERS FOR TORCHWOOD: CHILDREN OF EARTH DAY ONE UNDER THE CUT.
Also, I brought bolding so it's not tl;dr.Collapse )

Don't worry, for those of you who haven't seen it, I'll link you after you do.
